Every afternoon we experience a meltdown of some sort. Sometimes they are extreme, and sometimes it is banging the computer key board on the desk. Though I worry about the one throwing the fit, I am even more worried about his older brother (our middle child) who is mortified by his brother's actions, hates he can't have friends over with them thinking his brother is "weird" and he literally loses sleep over his brother's actions. We have tried to explain what is going on with youngest but I feel for middle child. It's not fair to any of us that we live like this but it is our reality. Any suggestions??
